The Chicago Bears come in at number two of our sleeper list. The Bears had arguably the NFL’s best defensive last season, and most of that group returns for the 2019-20 campaign. Players like Khalil Mack, Prince Amukamara, and Kyle Fuller will all be back for Chicago, making up one of the most reliable defenses in the league. Mack is coming off of an MVP-level season, as he collected 12.5 sacks and six forced fumbles last year. In addition to this talent, the Bears added experience to the defensive side of the ball in the offseason by signing safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. Clinton-Dix is set to bring additional run support for the 3-4 defense in Chicago.
They say that defense wins championships, and if that’s the case, then this Bears team has a chance at Super Bowl LIV. Chicago has built a championship caliber defense, and has started to piece together young talent on offense. Third year quarterback Mitch Trubisky took big strides last season as a leader. Trubisky threw for 24 touchdowns and 3,223 yards, and was able to improve on his game management skills. With this Chicago defense, the Bears are set to go as far as Trubisky can take them in 2019-20, with a Super Bowl title not out of the question for this exciting Bears squad.
